Default Router jig for a wood lathe

Good afternoon all!

Has anyone ever seen a router jig for a lathe where the router is on a pivot and comes down on top of a spindle while sliding in the bed ways gap? I have seen one before but would like to make one. Thank you in advance!

When I started to read your post I thought you were referring to a router lathe but when "jig" was mentioned I wondered if you mean something like this fluting jig that I've started but had to put to one side as more important jobs/projects came up, it's to be used in conjunction with the indexing system that I recently made and posted a photo-shoot of. I think that the two shots are self explanatory but if not, just ask. I'm sure that other members have already made their own jigs for this purpose.

Yes, I have one made by Sears, however they stopped making these in the early 1980's. If you type "router lathes" in the search on You Tube, you can find the exact model being used by Paulcosky
Good Luck

What a great idea. You make flutes. Are you a flutier?

I suspect that your jig was made well before your first post Clete and that your question was purely rhetorical.

Harry, I actually made it after the first posting. I am a very impatient person. I am now looking to re-invent it for multiple uses like adding accents to turned bowls and make it fit a variety of swings of lathes.
